D Compellor | Products for Professional Audio, Recording, Broadcast, Audio Applications | Aphex

The D’s limiter acts on peaks that shoot beyond average program levels so they are easy to handle by any analog or digital recording system.

The A is then ready to provide complete dynamic control – smooth, inaudible compression, sphex system gain, desired program density and the freedom from constant “gain riding” – all performed automatically. When you specify a Compellor, you know it will do its job flawlessly and give you peace of mind.

The A provides the option of Dual Mono or Stereo operation. No other product can match the performance of the D. So overall my impression is that this comp is a fantastic tool, which really does offer some valuable processing power and a super clean sound; aphe it is not well suited for use in any rig where the dynamics and signal peaks can vary wildly.

I think the A version is discontinued, only available used. When you listen, you know the levels are made more even, but you don’t perceive the levels are shifting.

The Silence Gate immediately releases when the program material resumes. No Longer Available Update Location close. See any errors on this page?

Write a review fvzqbyxqudwyaxxu. The D’s Frequency Discriminate Leveler section, with the Dynamic Verification Gate and the Silence Gate, slowly adjusts the volume level of an audio stream with very complex algorithms that hide its work.

The stated purpose of this processor is to aphwx match the output levels of low-level and high-level incoming signals. With compelllor careful experimentation I was eventually able to find a setting that worked decently for the hard-to-control bass with a minimum of artifacts, but it took some time. RJ connector on the rear panel facilitates remote relay bypass of the unit A Silence Ahpex feature detects significant gaps in the program material and freezes the processing, thus preventing noise “swell” or “build-up”, a condition commonly audible in other automatic gain control devices.


With the active, the automatic levelling functions were trying so hard to regulate the signal that the noise level would jump up and down, and playing that B string hard caused a lot of distortion.

The tone is completely transparent. The D can act as two independent mono processors or one linked stereo processor, which is selectable on the front aphx.

There is no rolloff of the lows, and the highs only roll off a bit at the highest compression settings. By going beyond conventional design ideas, the D provides audio processing with unprecedented sound transparency, yet is exceedingly effective at controlling levels. With the passive, this comp really brought out the sound in a punchy, articulate way, with nice clear harmonics, and no noticeable noise or artifacts. The aphec technologies within the D are totally unique. When the analog input is aphsx, the digital output contains the D’s processing.

It can also take a sloppy instrumental or vocal track and regulate it all to the same level. Some Compellors have literally been in hour use in the same rack for a decade or longer! Be the first to review this item. Not specified by manufacturer. Playing irregularly–a few notes, then a rest, then a few more notes–also caused the automatic sensors to work overtime, which resulted in audible artifacts.

It doesn’t generate any noise of its own, although like all compressors it can amplify existing noise at higher settings. So right at the outset, this unit is capable of far more advanced dynamics control than most other comps, but it can also be harder to use since the controls are unfamiliar and non-concrete.

I also noted that the limiter was not so useful, it only kicked in on the most extreme peaks. So it’s ideally suited to broadcast work. You might say a steady, level signal doesn’t need any compression, but the processed signal is much more “present” and “energetic” sounding than the dry signal.


The front panel metering system displays input level, output level or gain reduction levels. Patented control circuits include analog computers that continuously analyze the input signal, and vary the control characteristics to provide for virtually undetectable operation, regardless of the dynamics qphex the program. It can be used to solve audio level problems and improve audio signals in the broadcast or recording studio, tape duplication house, film-dubbing studio or in live sound applications.

When the digital input is used, the analog output contains the D’s processing, dompellor leveled.

It combines compression, limiting, leveling, and gating, and those functions are all controlled in an interconnected way by an automatic “program adaptive” system. Extremely easy to operate, the user only needs to set the Drive level to generate the desired amount of processing, set the Process Balance control between Leveling and Apbex and adjust the Output level for unity gain.

On the other hand if your technique and signal are already fairly even, and you just want to enhance the punch and harmonics, and set your place in the mix, this is a good tool for that purpose. It will try very hard to normalize an unruly signal, resulting in the noise level raising and dropping constantly. In Stereo alhex, the user can choose between linking only the leveling control signals or linking both the compression and leveling signals. In mono mode, unit provides two completely independent channels of processing.
